Food Pairings for Aconga Malbec Blend Malbec/Cabernet Sauvignon
I couldn't decide to give this wine a 3 or a 4 at first. I settled on 4 because of the value/quality ratio. If this wine were $10 I would have given it a 3. If I had paid $20, I'd be disappointed. But for the price, it's really nice. I picked it up for $3 at a Ralphs. Once the alcohol evaporates off, it is mildly dry (which I like). Initial attack is bright and fruity cherry (but not too sweet). Finish is a little bit woody. It's a simple, drinkable, pleasant wine that would be good as an everyday dinner wine. Way more interesting than a Gallo table wine. Nice with salmon or pasta. I'd buy this again. Oh yeah, it also breathes nicely. 2 days after opening it, it is still tasty and nice. A really good buy for less than $5.

This wine was a very pleasant surprise. I bought it for the cheap price of about $3.99 for an inexpensive "every night" dinner wine. It was smooth and dry and "went down" very well. If I could remember where I bought it (and find it locally) it would definitely be my favorite new wine!
Picked up dirt cheap at Kroger grocery store. They appear to be the only distributor. Drinks surprisingly well for its age. I think it could improve from a 3 to a 4 after another year or two of aging, though. Could be a cheap way to give the ol' cellar a boost for the short-term.
For the $3 price range, it's very drinkable. I think it would make a perfect gift/dinner drink for people inexperienced with wine. For the regulars, you may notice the light color and mild taste. I agree with Igbagby, buy a case and store it for a few years, I'm sure it will be great. Overall, I've been very surprised with wine from this region.
